Olofsson scored a power-play goal on two shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks. This is not a recording -- all six of Olofsson's tallies this year have come with a man advantage. The Swedish rookie is making the most of his first-unit usage with all the goals, but he's not going to shoot over 30 percent forever. Olofsson has eight points and 17 shots in seven games.
Olofsson scored his fifth power-play goal of the 2019-20 season in a 4-0 win over Dallas on Monday. Olofsson has been on fire to start the year, with seven points in six games. He certainly has plenty of scoring touch at this level and opposing teams will now have to start focusing on shutting down the young winger if they hope to defeat the red-hot Sabres. The 24-year-old is now tied with Edmonton's James Neal for the league lead in power-play goals with five.
Olofsson scored a power-play goal and had four shots in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime victory over Montreal. Olofsson has now collected at least one point in all four games this season and has found the net in each of the last three. All four of his goals this year -- and all six in his young career -- have come with the man advantage. The 24-year-old joined the Sabres' organization last season after five years in the Swedish Elite League, scoring 30 goals and 63 points in 66 games with Buffalo's AHL affiliate in Rochester.
Olofsson scored a pair of power-play goals in a 7-2 win over the Devils on Saturday. Olofsson's first goal of the season opened the scoring Saturday, and then he found the back of the net again in the second period to give the hosts a 5-1 lead entering the final 20 minutes. The pair of goals, on top of his assist from Opening Night, gives Olofsson three points through two games.
Olofsson has been playing on Buffalo's top line in training camp. The rookie winger appears to have the inside track on starting the season on a line with Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart. Olofsson posted 63 points in 66 games for Rochester in 2018-19, as well as four points in six games for the Sabres. He makes for an intriguing sleeper pick with plenty of upside should he deliver on his opportunity.
